NEW YORK — Much of the northeastern United States woke up to record cold on Valentine's Day.

The National Weather Service says the temperature in New York City's Central Park on Sunday was minus-1, a record low for the date. The last time it got below zero in Central Park was in January 1994.

Boston reached minus-9, breaking the record set in 1934 by 6 degrees. It reached minus-16 in Worcester, Massachusetts, breaking the 1979 record of 11 below zero. Providence, Rhode Island, and Hartford, Connecticut, also tallied record lows.

In Montpelier, Vermont, the overnight temperature hit minus-19, tying a record set in 2003.

Temperatures were expected to climb before a winter storm already bringing snow to the Midwest moves into the region for the start of the work week.
